UNIT4: The (Largely) Untold Story - Part 2


Part 1 of this series started with my invitation by UNIT4 (formerly Unit 4 Agresso), the second-largest business applications provider in continental Europe, to attend its UK 2010 user conference. Frankly, I was a bit skeptical about what new and exciting I might see and hear about at this event in light of the vendor’s analyst tour in Boston in late 2009. My post then

Hybrid ERP Cloud Tales


The vast majority of enterprise resource planning (ERP) system instances are still deployed on premises for obvious historical reasons; however, a growing number of customers are becoming interested and demanding cloud deployments, for only brand new modules (“edge” functionality) or even the total system’s migration to the cloud. So, what are enterprise systems vendors supposed to do?

agresso dfid  never heard of UNIT4 Agresso ERP having a formal program for shifting customers from on-premise to hybrid or any other cloud deployment, is because no program is required—so there is nothing ‘new’ to announce! The action of moving UNIT4 Agresso ERP customers from one deployment option to another—whether it’s cloud to cloud, on premise to cloud (in any flavor—private or public, multitenant cloud) or however they wish to deploy—is a simple ‘freedom of choice’ action that is fast to do Read More

Vendors Jostle and Profess Economic Stimulus Readiness - Part IV


Part I of this series analyzed the opportunities (as well as the related strings attached) stemming from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), a.k.a. the Economic Stimulus Plan. The inspiration came from my attendance of the Deltek Insight 2009 user conference last May, where Deltek decided to fill a market need and interest by convening a separate “track” that was entitled

For its part,  Agresso claims to have been instantly and inherently able to meet the new transparency regulations that are required by the stimulus funds.  As described in my previous blog post, Agresso’s VITA architecture  allows for rapid change of the current enterprise system in place, especially in terms of new reporting requirements. This is in sharp contrast to traditionally going through a lengthy ERP system acquisition and initial implementation, and later through a lengthy implem Read More

Cash Management 101


Cash management is an essential business process all organizations must perform to survive. Though cash management uses automation for much of the “grunt” work, it is human intelligence in the financial decision making that does the rest.

One Offering to Watch Unfold in 2012: UNIT4 Business Analytics Apps


For me, the third week of December 2011 was a week of revelations of sorts in the realm of enterprise applications. Amid all the IT punditry/buzzword talk throughout the year about cloud computing, analytics, mobility, social, and in-memory, there were two concrete announcements in mid-December from two vendors that gave me pause. Both vendor product announcements are still far away from their
